It's time for another Telegraph sex poll. And look what just popped up: a survey by sex-toy company Lovehoney that effectively serves as both a font of relationship information and a weekend buzzkill. According to the survey, men and women aren't in sync in the bedroom when it comes to the optimum "Sex O'Clock," the Telegraph reports. Men feel most frisky between 6am and 9am, while women are feeling the love way into the night—they most want to romp between 11pm and 2am. And the percentages of those who enjoy getting it on during the other gender's preferred window are similarly low, with just 16% of men wanting sex before falling asleep for the night, and a mere 11% of women wanting to take care of business as soon as the rooster crows.

"Men are ready for sex just before breakfast, whereas women most want passion last thing at night," Lovehoney co-owner Richard Longhurst says, per the newspaper. As for trying to get those sex drives to match up, sweet talk might make more of a difference for the fairer persuasion, with 36% of women revealing their sexual desire was linked to their mood—more than half of the guys said their desire was constant no matter what, the Independent reports. Some fair-to-middling news that emerged from the poll of 2,300 adult participants: Of the ladies, 63% said they wanted the same amount of sex as the partner they're with, while 54% of men agreed with that statement. "What is encouraging is that most people tend to find sexual happiness in the end with a partner with similar needs," Longhurst says. (Another weird sex survey found Republicans have less sex than Dems—but sounds like it's pretty good.)
